Martin Radich's Norfolk greenlit
Thriller to be the first film to be taken into production from the iFeatures2 development slate.
Creative England, BFI Film Fund and BBC Films have greenlit Martin Radich’s Norfolk, the first film to be taken into production from the iFeatures2 development slate.
iFeatures is a flagship initiative for Creative England, which will see filmmakers continue to benefit from an intensive programme of professional development support, courtesy of the Creative Skillset’s Film Skills Fund.
Radich’s second feature tells the story of an assassin and his young son who are hiding out in an apparent rural idyll when the man’s unspeakable past starts to catch up with him. Norfolk is produced by Finlay Pretsell.
Tristan Goligher, iFeatures2 executive producer, commented: “Martin is without a doubt one of the most original film makers in the UK today. Norfolk shows all the individuality and humanity of his previous work, whilst also stepping into new territory. The landscape of the Norfolk broads will serve Martin’s vision for this unique, violent and allegorical tale.”
Three further iFeatures2 projects – Spaceship from writer/director Alex Taylor, The Den from writer Ed Hime and director Al Mackay and The Goob from writer/director Guy Myhill – remain on the development slate with a decision due in late March as to which two will follow Norfolk into production this summer.
